Innocent as a Dove (Matthew 10:16)

and “Cautious as a Serpent” = Discretion

Discretion (can) mean(s) being spiritually awake and vigilant(.)! (& at all times…in the light/dark)

“Look out that no one takes you captive by means of the philosophy and empty deception . . . of the world.”​—COL. 2:8.

Nope.

excerpted readings…[and past article highlights: Three Things That Money Cannot Buy AWAKE! October 2013]

“On average,” says The Narcissism Epidemic, “materialistic people are less happy and more depressed. Even people who simply aspire to have more money suffer from poor mental health; they also report more physical health problems such as sore throats, backaches, and headaches and were more likely to drink too much alcohol and use illegal drugs. Striving for financial success, apparently, makes people miserable.”

There is more to a secure future than stockpiling money. After all, money can be stolen—and it cannot cure disease or prevent death. (Ecclesiastes 7:12) The Bible teaches that genuine security comes from knowing God and his purpose.—John 17:3.

There is more to life than money and the things it can buy. After all, it is as the Bible says: “Even when a person has an abundance his life does not result from the things he possesses.” (Luke 12:15)

The Bible predicts a time when money is worthless and people will be throwing it in streets…(potential topic for another post?)

The Bible exposes the folly of what it calls “the showy display of one’s means of life.” (1 John 2:16) The fact is, an obsession with possessions distracts us from the very things that matter most in life—the things that money cannot buy.

The love of money causes all kinds of trouble. Some people want money so much that they have . . . caused themselves a lot of pain.”—1 Timothy 6:10, Contemporary English Version.

“Better to eat vegetables with people you love than to eat the finest meat where there is hate.”—Proverbs 15:17, Good News Translation.

The bottom line: Money cannot buy family unity. That only comes from spending time with your family and giving them adequate love and attention.—Colossians 3:18-21.

“Stop storing up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust consume, and where thieves break in and steal.”—Matthew 6:19.

“You do not know what your life will be tomorrow.”—James 4:14.

“Having sustenance and covering, we shall be content with these things.”—1 Timothy 6:8.

“Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need.—Matthew 5:3.

O. M. F. Optimization for Multiple Functioning

appreciation attitude Breathing-Fragile-Life choice conscientious-ness God insights Joan Winifred loyalty science & spirituality stress management

Are You a “seeing skeleton” ?!

(not sure (and no time to research) IF i’ve already shared this here (aka this blog previously))…

Check it out at YOUR OWN RISK…of seeing/(understanding) better…

THE reef-dwelling brittle star has an amazing form of armor on its upper surface. This part of its skeleton is studded with microscopic lenses that turn the animal’s armor into a compound eye.

According to chemist Joanna Aizenberg, the brittle star’s dual-purpose shell “demonstrates an important principle: in biology, materials are often optimized for multiple functions.

[…]researchers have devised a simple, low-cost method of producing arrays of microlenses made of calcium carbonate. The many applications of these arrays include telecommunications, where they are used to conduct light signals through optical fibers. [excerpted past/recent reading/peering…The Seeing Skeleton of the Brittle Star–Was It Designed? (by God) AWAKE! May 2013]

Brittle thinking lacks tensile strength…(and now and again may be ? we all need an antacid;)  perhaps (a) 1 life lesson…we can make the most of things…efficiency and speed…is found in not sweating the small stuff (follow-through on the small stuff, (but don’t let it hinder progress long-term)) and …when we can effectively tackle the microscopic…may be we see/understand the macroscopic…

practical verse:

The person faithful in what is least is faithful also in much, and the person unrighteous in what is least is unrighteous also in much. (Luke 16:10)

Multiple/Flexible Functioning…optimizing wellness:  spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically…:)

H.F.T…Harvesting, Funneling, and Trapping

attitude Breathing-Fragile-Life comfort hope Joan Winifred logic never giving up!

To keep themselves warm during cold weather, butterflies spread their wings in the sun. The wings of some species of swallowtail are remarkably efficient at trapping and absorbing sunlight. The insects’ secret lies not just in their dark pigment but also in the structure of microscopic, overlapping scales coating their wings. The scales, in turn, contain rows of honeycomblike holes separated by inverse V-shaped ridges that funnel light into the holes. This ingenious structure traps incoming sunlight, making the wings extremely black and warming the butterfly with amazing efficiency.

“Butterfly wings may rank among the most delicate structures in nature,” says Science Daily, “but they have given researchers powerful inspiration for new technology that doubles the production of hydrogen gas—a green fuel of the future—from water and sunlight.” [excerpted Article/my bold highlights: Was It Designed? The Light-Absorbing Butterfly Wing AWAKE! 2014]

hmmmm…a no brainer to me, YES! An innovative-intelligent-chief-builder-designer constructed/created Butterfly wings!:)

Life Lesson: Don’t underestimate any (seemingly) delicate structure/frame/form…

If Butterflies can fly/function with 70% wing damage…

IF only 30% of my life is chaos/problem/challenge-free…i can still FLY HIGH!…survive 🙂

Seashell Skull

attitude Joan Winifred wisdom

Whatever it takes to protect my mind from…………(You??) (me??) (the external/the internal) (aka (any potentially) lasting spiritual harm)

SEASHELLS enable mollusks to live in harsh conditions, resisting tremendous pressures on the seabed. This ability to provide optimum protection inspired engineers to study the shape and structure of seashells with a view to designing vehicles and buildings that will protect their occupants.

discipline.

In the case of the bivalve, it was found that the ribbing on the exterior of a shell directed stresses toward its hinge and outer edges. In contrast, the curving exterior of a spiral shell directed pressure toward its core and wide top. In both cases, the seashells’ shapes channeled pressure to their strongest areas, meaning that in the event of damage, harm to the mollusk would be less likely.

Researchers also ran comparative stress tests on real shells and on simple hemispheres and cones (produced on a 3-D printer) that mimicked shells’ shapes and composition. The results showed that natural seashells’ complex surfaces nearly doubled their ability to withstand pressure when compared to the simple shapes. [Was It Designed? The Shape of Seashells Awake! No. 5 2017]

(don’t judge me by my outer shell/appearance: beware: i am no simple shape!)…
